A Few Lines

Long before the pandemic, the trees

knew how to guard one place with

roots and shade. …

Now is our time to practice–

singing from balconies, sending

words of comfort by any courier,

hoarding lonesome generosity

to shine in all directions like stars.

— Kim Stafford, “Shelter in Place”
